A lot of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would like to have two colors for reservations -- one to indicate that there is one or more ordinances that are not reserved, but available; and one to indicate that all the ordinances have been reserved and shared with the temple.
There has been some discussion that this is being considered, but that was at least a week or more ago. As another user, I don't know what the situation is.
One thing that I do know is that a lot of members are more interested in reserving ordinances than doing them. Jim Greene's wrote back on the 17th of last month:
We are no longer in a position where names submitted to the temple is more important than to have the ordinances performed. Therefore, while not changing the meaning we are changing the emphasis of the green temple. We need to think of it as "This ordinance is available for temple work to be performed." It does not mean "This ordinance is ready to be requested/reserved or submitted/shared with the temple." (emphasis added for clarity)My objective in doing family history research is to make each record of my relatives as complete as I can make it. I am unconcerned about reserving records, but have been more interested in making the record as complete as possible. I believe that should be all of our intent as members:
Let us, therefore, as a church and a people, and as Latter-day Saints, offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness; and let us present in his holy temple, when it is finished, a book containing the records of our dead, which shall be worthy of all acceptation.
